How to Hack a Panasonic DVD DMR

Under normal circumstances, a Panasonic DMR model DVD player can only play DVDs from the region it is assigned to--a player assigned to Region 1, for instance, can only play DVDs from Region 1. However, you can use the remote to enter a code that unlocks the DVD player, allowing you to play DVDs from all regions.

Step

Turn the player on. Press and hold "Shift" on the remote.

Step

Press "Setup," then release Shift. Press the "Enter" button twice.

Step

Choose "Other" and enter in a region code (for example, enter 0001 for Region 1).

Step

Press Enter, then "Return" twice. Turn the player off.
